Easter Trip 2023: Bamberg

Bamberg is another fun town to wander around. We got in in the afternoon and went to have a spy on all the things. 




This is probably the most famous spot in town - the view of the Altes Rathaus



You can walk through on the bridge













It doesn't look like it, but this was pretty steep!

While we were here we found out our friend had had her baby! We were so excited!


The view at night

The next day we hiked up to the palace and cathedral on the hill






The cathedral was closed to visitors, but would open in like a half hour, but I was starving by this point and could not wait for food...I definitely should have packed myself a snack

We had lunch at Henri which had lots of outdoor seating, but when we tried to go there for dinner we weren't able to sit out there so had to go somewhere else. But for lunch apparently outside is fine! We had gnocchi with roasted veggies

And this fancy stuffed kohlrabi - everything was super tasty!







The day prior we had seen that there were boat tours so we headed off for that in the afternoon



We had to go through a lock







Going back through the lock. It was so nice!

Then more wanders

We had seen this wall from the boat so we went to find it and see what the pictures were




And found an Indian restaurant, Samrat, which was super tasty! The flavors were much different than other Indian food we have had. We had the vegan Nilgiri (spinach, mint, coriander curry - so good!)

And Karahi - also super tasty! 

These mannequins are having fun!

Our last day we had another wander around a different part of town



We had lunch at Henrietta with some pesto pasta

And veggie pizza! So tasty, though for some reason they only had these small barrel tables opened even though there were a lot of people who wanted to sit outside and it was so warm! It was odd. 

And some chocolate gelato before we took my friend to the train station and headed home. It was such a nice trip! The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, the company was amazing. I'm still so sad she had to move back to the states, but it was nice while she was here.

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
